Artisans Learn Backstage Brushing Techniques
All that most JT students and faculty mem-
bers see of the activities of the art, dramatics and
music departments are the finished products dis-
played either in the art department window or
on stage. Thus, most know little about the pre-
paratory facilities used to "manufacture" the
But this observance does not imply that Jo-
liet Township High School is not well equipped in
preparatory paraphanalia. In the three rooms
and offices of the art department are crowded all
the utensils needed for most any proiect.
Dramatics and speech equipment includes
many school-owned tape recorders and record
players, lighting facilities, and a host of neces-
sary backstage implements.
Two "regular" classrooms are outfitted with
stage and all play-acting necessities. Here the
students are encouraged to learn the funda-
mentals of acting before venturing to the "big

Modern Implements lndoctrinate
Rick Doyle sets copy for a forthcoming issue of the J-Hi Journal on one of the
print shop's four linotype machines.
Diversity is the key to the excellence of fa-
cilities offered by the vocational departments of
Joliet Township High School. Housed in the two
modern vocational units fconstructed in 19581 im-
mediately east of the main building are imple-
ments of unequaled quality and quantity in any
secondary liberal arts institution in lllinois.
The school print shop's four linotypes, six
presses and type equipment, the school's elec-
trical apparatus, its many various drill presses,
saws, and lathes, its auto and farm mechanics'
tools . . . all provide the prospective laborer with
the opportunity to familiarize himself with the
machines of his future occupation.
But the vocational aspirant's education
doesn't end with his training in one of the vo-
cational shops. Through the school he is afforded
iob opportunities and training in his chosen field

farm or electronics work for a local radio station.
